How to add an instructor to any course
The next course-related content that you will need to create is the course instructor page. The course instructor page allows you to provide a biography and a profile picture for the course instructor to help students learn about them. You will see the course location in action when it is used to create a course section later on in this tutorial series.
Step 1: Creating a course instructor
Let's take a preliminary look at the course instructor creation page. Like course location, the course instructor content type is fairly simple compared to our other content types, such as announcement.
Next, let's look at the title field. Even though it is labeled as the title field, it is actually a field for the course instructor's name. When you create a course section, you will be lead back to your course instructor's page with the title field.
Let's add some biographical information into the body text. You can either get the instructor in question to write a summary for you, you can write one yourself, or you can pull some information from an already existing site. I'm getting my information about John VanDyk from his profile on the entomology website.
Step 2: Uploading an Image
Finally, let's upload an image for John VanDyk's page. Below the body text box (seen above), you will find a space where you can upload an image:
From here, we can upload a profile picture for John that will appear on all of his course sections. Once again, I'm using the information found on his entomology department profile. First, click the browse button and you will be brought to a dialog box that looks like the one I have below:
After you select your image, click the "upload" button. Now, your image should look like this on the page:
Now, save your page. The finished product should look similar to mine:
Now you're halfway to making a completed course listing. The next lesson will cover the course section content type.
